Putting the Law to Work for You


Rick Rutledge is an attorney in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, licensed to practice law in North Carolina and the federal courts in North Carolina.  This web site is here to tell you a little about Mr. Rutledge and the practice. Based in Winston-Salem, the practice focuses on serving the people of Forsyth County, and (where it makes sense) the neighboring counties of Davidson, Davie, Guilford, Randolph, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry, and Yadkin.

A General Law Practice

The practice is a general law practice.  While some lawyers specialize in a particular area of law, this practice covers several areas of the law, focusing on how the law affects people - individuals, families, and the small businesses that make up the backbone of the American economy.  See the page on practice areas for more detail on these areas.

  • Estate Planning
  • Small Business
  • Real Property
  • Elder Law
  • Family Business
  • Minor Criminal Matters
    (Traffic, etc.)
  • Probate
  • Civil Litigation
  • Life Planning

You should have an attorney now, even if you don’t think you need one, so that you have a number at the ready should problems arise.  As with doctors and dentists, you have to have a certain level of comfort and trust with your attorney.  That’s often referred to as “fit.”  If you don't already have an attorney, or if the attorney you've been working with doesn't “fit,” give me a call.  You're probably overdue for a checkup anyway!
